Today is the Summer Solstice

Today is the Summer Solstice, which is sometimes referred to as “Midsummer” Litha”. It’s the longest day of the year. The amount of daylight only goes down from here….for the next six months. Did you know? The sun does not set at the North Pole today. There is 24 hours of sunlight. Does it make up for that cold day in December when the sun does not rise above the horizon? No, but on this day it sure does feel good wherever you are!

Summer Solstice is the meteorological start of summer. It’s time to enjoy all the great amenities here at Kitterman Woods, two resort style pools, basketball, volleyball, tennis, or a leisurely stroll around the lakeside jogging path.

Kitterman Woods is also minutes from beaches and everything else that goes along with the favorite season of kids and most adults. St. Lucie County has many beautiful beaches for you to visit. Enjoy your own personal water sport interest from snorkeling to boogie boarding. We offer horseback riding on the beach at Frederick Douglas Memorial Park and dogs are welcome at Walton Rocks beach. So come out, have fun and cool down during those summer months. Lifeguards are stationed at Pepper Park and Waveland. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy the season, because for many of us it is all too short.
